ERASE Racism is a regional nonprofit organization on Long Island with a mission to increase understanding of how structural racism and segregation impact our communities and region through research, policy, and advocacy. Our program, Structural Racism on Long Island, begins with an understanding of "whiteness" as a concept and the meaning and function of white privilege. It will then address how structural racism was embedded into the development of Long Island. It will then connect this history and context to its ongoing impact, particularly as it relates to housing and education. Our program is interactive and conversational, aiming to engage participants in a vulnerable, honest conversation about how race continues to affect opportunity structures locally, regionally, and nationally, and how we can make positive change in our communities.

There will be a $25 fee for no-shows. This is only open to LILRC members.
